According to a new report from MobileSyrup, Rogers is planning to launch a new feature in the data management section of its MyRogers app called “Stream Saver.”
The new feature will allow customers to toggle off HD streaming for popular social media and video platforms. If the feature is enabled, Rogers will automatically downscale your video while you are on a cellular connection to save your data.
An internal document obtained by MobileSyrup states that the new feature will help customers “watch up to 3 times more of what they love.”
The feature will enable a toggle to turn on “non-HD” streaming on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and other popular services. The toggle can be set independently for every number on your account, so you can control the amount of data your kids consume.
The report notes that this feature is expected to launch soon, possibly as early as September 26th.
